“Imagine Faith No More crafting the soundtrack to a sixties espionage themed show and you get some idea of the visual potency on the imagination and the intricate yet seemingly simple tapestry of sound seducing ears.”

Opensight’s new album “Mondo Fiction” blends the band’s signature heaviness and intensity with themes and motifs that could be featured in iconic cinematic scenes. From car chases in a 70s crime film, or a plot twist in a murder mystery, all the way to a villain’s theme or the visit to an old graveyard in a supernatural thriller.
"Opensight have crafted an album to liven the most jaded of ears. Take Opeth and Faith No More and liberally add infusions from cult / spy movie soundtracks and you are close to the delights on offer. This is a fabulous album that will grow on you even more with repeated listens"

“Opensight took the stage with the energy and confidence of a well-seasoned band. In terms of stage performance they pulled all the stops and offered something worthy of a world touring band playing the bigger venues. Their sound reminded me slightly of The Mars Volta and Fantômas, a great combination of influences that results in something great to hear and that keeps you guessing what you’re getting on the next song.”
